I've always hated DnD treatment of armor, both second edition AC/THAC0 and 3.0+ AC. It never made sense to me that having a high armor class made you somehow harder to hit, instead I always thought that armor should reduce the amount of damage you took from a successful hit.

I agree, too. I hope PoEt won't be for hardcore CRPG players only. I sucked at Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale horribly. Ten years ago I couldn't even get past the first encounters. I tried the BG remake and I made it about 3 to 4 hours into the game before the enemies were really gaining the advantage. For some reason there's a line to be drawn for me, and BG/Icewind Dale is too hardcore.

I hope this is more toward Neverwinter Nights / Divinity OS but I doubt it :\

Anyone got something to say on this matter whom have played PoEt or know a lot about it?

Not trying to be a dick here, so please don't take it that way, but the creators of Pillars of Eternity have specifically called out the Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale series as the spiritual basis for the game.

It might be that this isn't the game for you if you didn't like those games.

Why am I not surprised to see so many of the users of this site, who have always commented on the most speculative..shilling...shilling shilling shilling...shilling shilling.

Signed up on 2/21/2015, just to post in this thread. How much do you get paid to defend this hookers-and-blow for Chris Roberts scheme?

I'm thinking this could be done, probably better, as a Skyrim MOD/Total Conversion.

Funny how peps want to wait for this game to go on sale , but don't have nada problem putting 1000$ or more for a pixel ship in Star Citizen , Wall guess those peps are feeling important like " We made the game" jezz

To be fair, I don't think we have anybody who is into Star Citizen for nearly that much on Blues. Based on the last couple SC threads, we do have a small number of people who are in at the base level, whatever that was.

Kxmode has stated several times that he has spent $930.00 on STar Citizen

Funny how in the same week Roberts puts out a statement about how SC isn't about the money...and then launches a limited ship sale at the same time.

You really can't have any sympathy for anyone still putting money into this sinkhole, or people just now getting on board.

The retards who put them over 70 million can be found here, gushing over the sweet, sweet feeling of giving Chris Roberts more money to put in the pile that he rolls around on every night before he spends it on custom space suits, travel expenses, and cocaine.

This game is incredible now.

True 6 degrees of freedom.

With a joystick, it's off the charts IMO.. better than Elite Dangerous (except for sound design). Decoupling into Newtonian physics is really fun, then recouple, afterburner, bam .. black out, and a 2 second 180.

Now we need the game part

I'm hyped, for good reason, this is not vaporware. The engine rocks now, when AC first came out I hated it for the simplistic crap controls. Trust me, it's good now!

Are you still flying around in a box in space?

In 2015 Webster's Dictionary is going to add the phrase "Clusterfuck", and the definition is just going to be "See Star Citizen development plan".

Not buying any Firaxis game until after first real patch. I learned my lesson with Beyond Earth.

More like a few years and a couple of expansions.

May end up that way, but at least by the first patch there will be enough hands on reviews and such to know if there's any initial worth there.

Wow, all of the negative ninnies here... I for one think this would be fantastic!

Games-Workshop has a great IP, and fantastic writers at their disposal, but their games division is focused on milking out every penny they can from customers at all costs. Whoring out their IPs to low-skill developers because they are paranoid that any game that comes too close to the tabletop experience will detract from their miniature sales.

Arena Commander 1.0 Release - More of Everything (including bugs)

Wow, sounds like a mess.


As an engineer/developer, I'm not bothered or concerned about the dev progress so far, it's basically normal. The pace and response time is as expected for a couple-hundred person operation (actually, on the faster side TBH). Weekly builds of any given large program are in no better shape than this.

-scheherazade



The pace isn't the issue at heart here, the problem is the ever-expanding scope of the project. With the way that the game has expanded from a mission-based space flight-sim, to a persistent universe flight-sim that starts off as a mission-based flight sim, to a persistent universe flight sim with built-in FPS functionality that starts off as a mission-based flight sim, it will be a miracle if there every truly is a 'Star Citizen 1.0' that actually fulfills the current scope of the game.

Would have rather have seen some sort of 4 on 4 or 5 on 5 asymmetric alien type vs human gameplay.

There's a lot more potential in that model than there is in this 4 vs 1 crap.

hahah why do you care how much time he spends reading about Star Citizen? I also have had a great time following the project and am enjoying the ride.
Once the game ships, if it sucks and I end up playing the game half the amount of time I spent reading about the making of it, does that somehow rewind the clock in space/time and make the past following the game less enjoyable? Does the amount some people have as expendable/hobby cash make you jealous because clearly some people are wealthy.
The more money wealthy people put into Star Citizen as well as just growing the amount of backers, stands to make the game that much better. As I said earlier, obviously there has to be some trust in the developers involved.

Wut?

I don't care how much time he spends, he's the one who said "I love watching all the behind-the-scenes videos, browsing the forums and seeing the game take shape" coupled that with the fact that he's in every thread here defending it...

I wouldn't spend that much time on a game, but he obviously wants to. I was just pointing out that his physical/emotional investment in this game is going to be detrimental to his health if it doesn't pan out.

You can spin the utterly ridiculous amounts of money some backers are putting into this game, any way you need to if it helps you sleep at night, but the reality is that spending exorbitant amounts or real money on virtual items in Star Citizen, is just as retarded as the $1,000.00+ bills in Clash of Clans.
